## Abstract

The least-squares approximation of cosine polynomials is used to construct the spectrum from the simulated nonuniform samples of the interferogram given by a step-mirror-based static Fourier transform spectrometer. Numerical and experimental results show the stability of the algorithm and a spectrum-constructing error of 0.03%.
